Former featherweight world champion Josh Warrington will be hoping for redemption tonight as he gets the chance to win the belt back in a title fight with Spanish veteran Kiko Martinez on home turf in Leeds. And you're in the right place to find out all the details on how to watch a Martinez vs Warrington live stream and catch all this weekend's boxing action from almost anywhere in the world on DAZN.

Warrington opted to vacate his belt last year in a bid to earn his profile showdowns with fellow champs Gary Russell Jr and Xu Can. Those hopes were dashed, however, after a shock defeat to Mauricio Lara last February.

A rematch for Warrington against the Mexican back in September saw the fight end in a technical draw, thanks to a deep cut sustained by the Mexican following a clash of heads.

Warrington's path to those big money bouts would be further complicated after newly-crowned champion Kid Galahad was beaten by rank outsider Martinez for the IBF belt, setting up tonight's big fight.

Martinez, now 37, is a previous IBF super-bantamweight title holder and has a career record of 43 wins, 10 loses and 2 draws.

Tonight's main event provides an exact rematch of their 2017 bout down to the venue, with their last encounter ending in a majority decision over 12 rounds for Warrington.
